Session on: Stem Cell Diabetes
Developing and testing a truly powerful Stem Cell based treatment for Diabetes will take years. The two main challenges are finding an sufficient supply of Insulin producing Cells and preserving these Cells from attack by the Immune System. There has been magnificent progress in solving the Beta Cell supply mix-up in that it is now possible to originate Insulin producing Cells from human ESCs and iPS Cells.
